EAST WINDSOR, N.J. — Ground was broken recently on a major expansion project by pharmaceutical company Hovione, which it expects will add approximately 60 new jobs to its current 50-person workforce. Check for Hovione jobs here.
Located at 40 Lake Drive in the vicinity of East Windsor New Jersey Turnpike exit 8, the expansion will add an additional 28,000 square feet to the existing 24,000 square-foot facility. It will allow for a new commercial spray dryer unit to complement the company’s existing pilot unit, which will be specifically designed to handle intermediate drug products.
In addition, the expansion will more than double the drug substance capacity at the site to support the needs of the current and future customer base. The overall investment is part of the company’s strategy to increase its global development and commercial capacity to meet the increasing demands of Hovione’s customers.
The company anticipates the expanded facility to be fully operational by mid-2017.
